Are friends keeping you single?

I was having a conversation the other day with a woman who was having a conflict with her guy.  He has complained about her intrusive friends since they have become exclusive.  According to him, they are bitter and unhappy women who are trying to sabotage their new relationship.  It is a real challenge when your new guy and your close friends don’t get along.  Eventually you have to make a choice, right?

The young lady admitted that this is not the first time her friends were an issue with her relationship.  I asked her if she ever thought that it was intentional.  Some people truly want their “friends” to stay single because they are.  Should your friends have a say in who you date?  If the person you are dating tells you that your friends are problematic, what do you do?

I know my friend Darren constantly has to play the mediator between his girlfriend and his friends.  They are often pressuring him to engage in his single man behavior, knowing he is in a committed relationship.  Darren just tries to play it in the middle of the road trying to make everyone happy.  He still has not put everyone in their place.

Do you think that friends can be a reason why single people don’t have relationships?
